Hi, friends! What a fun new product that Stampin’ Up! has introduced this fall. Two fabulous templates to make “flip cards” or “swing cards” more manageable. I never have taken the time to create these before now. I just don’t have the time to do more difficult projects. If it isn’t quick and easy, it isn’t happening for me these days. This sample is made with one easy pass through the Big Shot. Scoring, Cutting, and Ready to embellish! I found some wonderful tips and tricks on Pinterest, but honestly, it is as easy as turning the crank of your Big Shot. I loved making these cards, and last night’s club gals were equally impressed.
The photo above is the card stretched out flat so you can see the look of what happens when you cut it with the Big Shot. The photo below is what happens when you fold it up and embellish it a little. I used the Delicate Doilies stamp set, and the Eastern Elegance DSP. And what about the color combo? Don’t you like the new Smoky Slate and Coastal Cabana? It really makes me want to decorate a bedroom in these colors. I really think it looks gorgeous! I took this photo before I decided to stamp the inside (the Smoky Slate label above) — but at class we stamped it with “Friends”. Just a simple friendship card, sure to perk someone up when they find it in their mailbox.
You can’t go wrong with a little bling and some texture…….the ruffled ribbon trim is still one of my favorite new embellishments. The templates are shown below. Each one comes with alot of extra dies for embellishing your cards and papercrafting projects. You will not be disappointed in this product.
